I'm not welcome here anymore 😢
This app used to be amazing! I'm not a medical professional (I teach college chemistry) but have always been fascinated by the human body. When I discovered this app last year, I fell in love! I learned more about the body and diseases in a few short months than I had in my entire life. Sadly, that mostly ended after the update-of-exclusion a short while back. The powers that be decided that Figure1 was no longer to be the wonderful educational community that I had grown to love, and eliminated most of the features that made it so. Before, the community of practicing doctors would often post cases for med students to try to solve and were so friendly and warm and supportive as they guided them toward the correct diagnoses. I've noticed that this type of activity has decreased to almost nothing from what it was before. Or, perhaps, I'm only allowed to see this little because I'm not of the anointed class? I didn't know it was possible to be personally offended by an app update until this app update. Thanks, Figure1 for this last, truly memorable educational experience. FWIW, the app still has some value. And if you're new to it (and not a medical professional) you'll never know how much you missed out on, so, it's probably worth a try. However, I am heartbroken that this "update" destroyed such a brilliant resource.
Was good.... until update
This app was amazing. I work in the healthcare field, not as a professional but I loved scrolling through and learning and discussing with my husband who is a physician. The search option was great and I loved looking through different specialties. But not since the update. No more searching or looking through categories. All I ever see now are films and test results *yawn*. This app was so smart playing off people's interest in gore and now I'm bored, my husband is bored, and we will no longer use this app. Yea yea I'm sure it's educational and whatever but for the majority of the "common" public it was all a about the gross, fascinating, and ugly reality and now we don't get to indulge. Way to go.
Great concept, horrible execution
I've used this app for months and have taken part in case discussions that others have posted to teach and test students. This has been very helpful to me, and fellow students in our studies.
The latest update has removed the ability for students to search categories, follow colleagues, see alerts or post comments. All while "verified professionals" bicker like children, having personal fights in case comments.
Additionally, the Figure1 TOS states that no sharing of case information or photos is allowed, but there is a new "share" option that allows you to post case information and photos straight to your Twitter, Facebook and other social media websites. So much for patient anonymity.
The concept of this app is brilliant. There were small issues before, like the voting system changing the order of case comments. The latest update has turned a great learning tool for students into a slideshow.
